Baja Beach Fest announces 2022 lineup, including Daddy Yankee, Anuel AA and Banda MS
The six-day event will host several dozen reggaeton and Latin trap music acts over two August weekends
Baja Beach Fest, the Rosarito Beach reggaeton and Latin trap music festival that debuted in 2018 and was canceled in 2020 because of COVID-19, has announced its 2022 lineup.
The headliners include two leading Puerto Rican rappers and singers, Daddy Yankee and Anuel AA, along with the Mazatlan banda music group Banda MS.
Also confirmed to perform at the festival, which will be held Aug. 12-14 and Aug. 19-21, are the Puerto Rican reggaeton duo Wisin y Yandel, Panamanian vocal star Sech, Colombian singer-songwriter Maluma and Argentinian rapper Nicki Nicole.
The full roster of 33 acts appears below; the same lineup will perform on each of the event’s two weekends.
Both Anuel AA and Banda MS appeared at the 2021 edition of the six-day festival, which had a daily capacity of 35,000 and was sold out for the first weekend. It was held with strict COVID-19 protocols, including proof of vaccination or a negative test, along with mandatory mask-wearing for the outdoor event.
This year’s edition will adhere to whatever health mandates are in effect in Baja in August, according to an event representative.
The reggaeton and Latin trap music festival, which returns to Rosarito Beach Aug. 13-15 and Aug. 20-22 after a one-year postponement, drew 30,000 fans a day to its 2019 edition
While overall attendance dipped last year, the six-day music marathon still drew tens of thousands of people and ranked as the largest Latin trap music and reggaeton festival of 2021 to take place on this continent, if not beyond.
“Last year was an extreme success being able to be the first festival back in Latin America and most importantly bringing everyone together safely to have a good time in the beaches of Rosarito,” Baja Beach Fest co-founders Chris Den Uijl and Aaron Ampudia told the Union-Tribune in a written statement.
“This year, like always, we expect to elevate the experience for our fans and have a great time in Rosarito celebrating Latin music.”
Tickets for both 2022 weekends of Baja Beach Fest will go on sale at noon today at bajabeachfest.com.
Prices are $369 for a three-day general admission pass and $549 for a three-day VIP pass, plus service fees. For those who can afford to splurge and want to avoid the crowds below, elevated Sky Deck packages are priced at $10,000 for a table of 10.
